    Thanks to nephew @j95 exposing me to how great it is, I finally decided to spring for the full "master license" of JRiver Media Center so I could also install and register it on Linux, seeing that I am frequently using Linux on both the desktop and laptop now. This is on the desktop, Pop!_OS running Cinnamon desktop. Still no 5.1 functionality, but it sounds awesome on Linux with this media center. At least the subwoofer works and rattles the windows nicely. Been using this media center on Windows for a good while now. Thanks @j95! :vbthumbsup:

    Even the advanced JRiver Media Center features, like internet lyrics look-up, works great on Linux.

    Hello,
    I have as well the R3 OLED and PopOS is the best out of the box distro linux ever found... I tried everything (base I work with Archlabs) but... in which way you managed the Alienware Center of Window memory?
    For the brightness I change the gamma via command line... did you have a working app as well as for the backlight of the keyboard / touchpad?


    Cheers

    Nope, that is secondary in the grand scheme of things, if I cant get my primary functions going there isnt much point meddling with anything else.
